Top Five Christmas Cartoon Songs – Sean’s Picks [VIDEO]
This is one of the hardest things I think I’ve ever tried to do. There are so many many good songs to choose from. Some of them I just love because they take me back to being a kid, others I find funny and creative and still others are just plain fun to sing. I’m sure you will have favorites that I didn’t list here and to be honest, I probably could have argued with myself until Christmas day trying to narrow mine down to five, but I went with the ones that first came to mind. With all that in mind please understand that I was not even about to try to rank these. SO let’s take a look at my top five in no particular order.
The Grinch Song : This is a given right?
Put One Foot In Front On The Other : I so loved the movie “Santa Claus is coming to town” Who would have thought claymation could be so timeless. This one is fun to sing, and even as a kid I think I understood the great message! This was the only version I could find, I’m sure it will take you back.
Heat Miser – Snow Miser : Love this one! It’s from “The year without a Santa Claus”. These brothers took sibling rivalry to a new level. Heat Miser was my favorite though.
The Lonely Jew : This one from Southpark still makes me laugh. I remember as a kid wondering what it was like for the kids who had different holidays, even then I realized that “Christmas” was the commercial favorite. In this song we get a glimpse at how one kid felt, left out a bit. It’s funny and in a way a little sad.
Linus- The True Meaning of Christmas : This one isn’t even a song but I just don’t know how I could do a list like this and not include it. Who doesn’t love this, and be honest, who doesn’t want to get the sad little sickly Christmas tree just because Charlie Brown did?
